I came across this funny comic about the ebook vs the traditional book. It's cute. The real point of the story is - reading is not only fun, but very important and helps develop many attributes in a child.
Oh, and here are some great STEM reading (and game) resources. This might come in handy over the summer?!
If you’re a power user of Google Forms, did you know that you can save a lot of time by creating a default version that is customizable with each new use? The easiest way to do this is by pre-filling responses for certain fields.
In this video, I mention several different use cases but the most prominent is for teachers and those in the EDU community. If you use Google Forms to have students submit assignments, pre-filling a response can definitely streamline the process.
For example, as a teacher you would have a default Google Form for student’s assignments with the basic fields covered:
- First and Last Names
- Section Number
- Assignment Name
- Assignments Shared URL in Google Drive
As you create different assignments for your students, pre-filling the Assignment Name with your specific naming convention can make it easy to keep track of responses, along with only having to edit one Google Form.
Pre-filling responses is great for any industry as well. If you require employees to submit time-sheets through a Google Form, pre-filling the date range will allow you to manage one Form, rather than dozens.
